Putting the Crooks out of Banking. Financial Integrity in Regulation and Supervision: The Italian Case (1991-2001)
AbstractAfter September 2001, the war against the financing of both terrorism and organized crime occupies the centre of the policy makers' agenda. This paper has a threefold objective. To better evaluate the design of the regulation and the supervision strategy, it reviews the economics of the relationships between banking activities, on one side, and money laundering and terrorism finance, on the other side. Then it describes how the subject of integrity progressively emerged in Italian banking sector. Finally it analyzes how the Italian financial regulation and supervision have responded to the threats to integrity.
